Eating in local restaurants has been reduced to takeout & delivery at this time.
Lisa announced the cancellation of the club holiday get together @ Tlaquepaque, originally scheduled for Saturday, December 12. Hopefully we will be able to reschedule this for early next year.
Fine Master Michelle was in fine form! She fined herself, Hugh & Craig $1 for not wearing any Rotary insignia. Happy bucks-Craig had $5 for Marina turning 19, Hugh had $5 for all the good work everyone is doing, Jim had $5 for the completion of the project for the veterans, Kathi had $5 for grandson Marshall’s 4th birthday, Michelle had $5 just because, Sad Bucks-Craig and $1 for his son being deployed indefinitely in Kuwait.
Jim announced the welcome kits for the veterans are almost completed. The Veterans Village is almost full to capacity. Thursday, December 10 @ 9:00 AM, Jim & Ward will be shopping @ Sam’s Club for staples for the Blessing Boxes. Michelle shared a great story of a customer in the credit union, being a recent resident of Veterans Village. She shared with him, the efforts of the Rotary Club of Placentia, on behalf of the residents. She has definitely made a new friend!
Turgut shared the Water Project, which was a program a few weeks ago from the Rotary Club of Long Beach, is asking for the contributions from the club. Alice, Ron, Turgut, Glenn, Kathi are contributing & Jim will send a check from the club. We are hoping to reach $1,000.00. Contact Jim if you're interested in being a part of this project.
